After 200+ pages of writing, hundreds of hours of video editing and photo lab work, and countless pages of reading, I can finally declare that my last official "Finals Crunch Time" as an undergrad is officially OVER. Yes. It's OVERRRR. And I'm freeeeeeeeeeee!!! I have finally completed my college career at Syracuse University. And man, I must say that it feels great to be at the finish line. Yes, I know reality is going to smack me in the face real soon, and I'm going to have to hit the pavement hard to secure myself a job, but I absolutely need to take some time off and revel in the fact that I'm now done with college.


Okay, I'm done now. Whew. You don't understand just how great it feels to be able to move onto something new. Yes, I enjoyed being in college, and I'm sure I'll be looking back on these times one day and miss them tremendously, but right now, this is THE life. I can finally go home and not worry that I'm wasting time doing something that I shouldn't be doing because of some stupid deadline. Shit, I can read books for leisure again! (I haven't done that since high school.) Instead of writing up some silly ass assignment, now I can blog frequently again. Instead of being forced to sit in front of my computer to do work, I can now go out, play baseball, work on some independent film projects, catch up on my personal writing, and see friends that I've lost contact with since I entered college. Hell, now that I have time, I can even go on dates now! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

Seriously, since I last blogged, I was sucked into a huge vacuum of work and barely had the time to catch a breath of fresh air. And, just when I thought I was done, I was sucked right back into it after certain professors decided that they wanted to be complete 'tards and give me "Ds" for no reason. As I type this, I'm still working on petitions to get professors to change their grades in light of all the work that I did for them, but, for the most part, in terms of heavy duty college work, I'm completely done. At the same time, I had to move out of my apartment in Syracuse and get 5 years worth of stuff and transport it all back to the Bronx. So far, I've made about 3 trips back and forth between the two cities, 300 miles each way, in the past week and a half. (Yeah, I had a lot of stuff) I still need to go back to the Cuse on Tuesday to finish up some odds and ends for school and start working on a job search, but, come Thursday, when I head back to NYC, I shouldn't have a reason to head back to Cuse other than to just chill with some friends. After that, my real summer begins, and I'll take the opportunity to recover from Finals for about a month. With any luck, I should start a job by late July, early August.

So, I'm back. Keep coming back here for more blog entries when I get into a few more details with everything and I catch up with all my little "Coffee Break" featurettes. Let me say it loud one more time....
